ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: CAGE THE ELEPHANT

Mempho
Coming from the roots of Memphis to give back to the people, get ready for Mempho Music Festival! Mempho will offer attendees an abundance of great music, food, and nature, all just minutes from downtown Memphis!

In its inaugural year, Mempho will be kicking things off with an exceptional headliner: Cage the Elephant. Following the success of their Grammy Win for Best Rock Album, Tell Me I’m Pretty, Cage the Elephant are currently on the road in support of their recently released live album, Unpeeled.

“Cage The Elephant produces the kind of music you’d expect to find on the Almost Famous soundtrack, sitting somewhere between Simon & Garfunkel and The Who. So well written is their music that they have managed to create timelessness in their tunes. When kids google “best rock albums of all time” in twenty years, it’s almost certain they will find Unpeeled up there alongside Tommy and Bookends.” – Tanis Smither Album review via Earmilk


Check out their latest cover here from their new live album:

Also  joining Cage The Elephant at Mempho will be Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals, Cold War Kids, Bishop Briggs, Steve Cropper + many more!!

Chow Town is Lollapalooza’s own foodie central, with tons of tasty options from the Windy City’s finest eateries. Curated by the celebrity chef Graham Elliot, there is sure to be an entree, drink, or treat for everyone in attendance!

As the one-stop shopping destination, you can guarantee the Lolla Market will have all the garb and souvenirs that your heart — or wallet — can handle. With artist merch, an autograph signing tent, and even a glitter bar, you may find yourself having to make the pit stop more than once!

Kidzapalooza

As the definitive family festival, Lollapalooza wouldn’t be complete without a kiddie zone!

Lolla Cares

It may be all about the community while you’re at the festival, but don’t forget that the community lives on long after the weekend ends. Since its inception, Lollapalooza has always worked to inform its guests on how we can help to better our world. Whether its becoming more environmentally conscious, registering to vote, or saving a life through a bone marrow match, Lolla Cares brings together the best of the best!


Aftershows

When the festival grounds close each night, the party is far from over! With shows from acts like Spoon, Blink-182, Migos, Mac DeMarco, Grouplove, Zeds Dead, + many more happening every night, the festival fun extends far beyond Grant Park, and even further into the night. The party never stops at Lollapalooza! Check out the full schedule here.

SUMMER SET: TOP FIVE

With August right around the corner, it’s time for yet another great year of Summer Set Music & Camping Festival!


Taking place in Somerset, WI from August 11th-13th, it’s sure to be a weekend full of all the music, art, and nature you could ever ask for! If you haven’t yet, check out the insane lineup below:

With a lineup this dense, its hard to know who’s a must-see and who will have to sadly be skipped. Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of our top five artists that will be playing over the weekend! Check it out:

Zeds Dead

As one of the absolute front-runners of the electronic music scene, Zeds Dead is a must-attend, whether your first or tenth time seeing them. After just finishing up an immaculate showing at their annual Dead Rocks at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Zeds Dead is back on their festival game. With their Northern Lights album recently released, their new artist collective Dead Beats just launched, and their headlining status, the duo that is Zeds Dead is more than ready to throw down!


Post Malone

While he is most definitely a rapper, it would be a shame to put Post Malone in such a box. Posty is a diverse artist with influences from many genres; Hollywood Dreams, one of his most popular songs off of his mixtape August 26, is a cover of a Fleetwood Mac song. Known for energetic live performances full of bangers, slow jams, and even the occasional new song, Post Malone is a must-see. If you’re not sold on him yet, check out the video for his single Congratulations below!


RL Grime

With an exponential amount of new artists coming into the game daily, it is something special to be heralded as the king of electronic trap music. For RL Grime, this is not a title he has claimed, but earned. Coming into the mainstream with his insane remix of Kanye’s Mercy followed by the even more show-stopping rework of Benny Benassi’s Satisfaction, RL Grime has been releasing explosive tracks ever since. Pair this with his years of experience playing massive live DJ sets, and that’s a recipe for a great night!


Big Wild

If you’re a fan of Odesza, future electronic, or just instrumental electronic in general, Big Wild should already be a name that you’re familiar with. If not, get excited to become acquainted with the only one-man show you need to know. Big Wild released his debut EP, Invincible, earlier this year, and you can hear him shine through as an excellent drummer with an ear for creative kick-snare patterns. You can catch him all performance either banging away on his drum pads or getting ready to cue his next track, but don’t stare too long or you might get lost in his rhythms… check out his hit single Aftergold below!


GRiZ

If you came to get funky, GRiZ is here to help you out. As the saxophone-slaying, synth-laying, bass-banging deity he is, GRiZ is one of the most genuine electronic artists to come onto the scene. Often using his fame to garner support for non-profits, his moniker “Show Love, Spread Love” is a staple of his community outreach. If that isn’t enough reason to support him, have you heard his music? With a surplus of hard-hitting singles, a live charisma that could match any pop star, and that saxophone, how could you say no!


With summer in full swing, it’s never a bad time to get your festival on. If you haven’t already bought yours, tickets are still available for Summer Set: right here!

Any other artists you’re more excited to see than these five? Let us know on social media at Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

#KEEPFLOATIN AT FLOAT FEST

Float Fest hits Texas this weekend and we are READY!

The raddest, baddest, floatest fest kicks off this weekend at Cool River Ranch and this year’s lineup is stacked with some of our favorite acts. From Zedd to Weezer and everyone in between, Float Fest has created the perfect blend of music for all to enjoy out on the river. Grab your schedules Float Fam, because its time to start planning! Check out our top 5 artists to help you get started:


MGMT

First up, we have the psych rockers who made it big back in 2007 with “Electric Feel” — the song that is still stuck in all of our heads to this day! It’s been 4 years since they’ve put out any new music, but the duo has recently announced an album titled Little Dark Age. Since the announcement, they have played a handful of shows and premiered some new material. We can already tell that the two have fulfilled their promise of “re-dominating our mind holes”. Get ready for MGMT to shock you like an electric eel!


Mac Miller

As one of the few hip-hop acts of the weekend, Mac Miller is a must-see! His most recent album, The Divine Feminine, offered up a completely new side of the Pittsburgh rapper, really showcasing his artistry. We are so stoked to see him take the stage and do what he does best — get the crowd jumping!


Moon Taxi

You may have passed up seeing Moon Taxi in the past, but they are really worth checking out! Having been together as a band for 10 years now, it seems like they’ve played all of the major festivals within the US. The Nashville natives are dominating the festival scene, and you’ll immediately see why once you’ve caught their set! Come hop on the Moon Taxi with us!


Sweet Spirit

Get to know Austin’s very own Sweet Spirit! Headed by the vivacious Sabrina Ellis, the nine-piece band is a brilliant blend of both 70’s garage and southern rock, with tunes that will keep you dancing from start to finish! Check out the spirited single from their latest album St. Mojo!


Los Coast 

They may be the first act of the day, but this is not their first rodeo… or festival! Without an album or label, this up and coming band has still managed to take on the grand stages of Austin City Limits and Free Press Summer Fest. With soulful vocals and psychedelic guitar riffs that are out of this world, Los will make you question not only what decade you’re in, but where all this noise is coming from! You definitely don’t want to miss out on what Los Coast has got goin’ on!


Check out the daily schedule below!

See you on the river!

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BRANTLEY GILBERT

Country Jam

In just a few short months, the country fest that we have all been waiting for will finally arrive! 2017 marks the 5th year of WCOL’s Country Jam at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio, & this year’s lineup is jam-packed with some of country music’s biggest stars!


We are so excited about this year’s headliner, Brantley Gilbert! He is not only a CMA, ACM, and Billboard award winner, but the guy really knows how to rock an arena crowd!

Brantley Gilbert Website

“Brantley Gilbert is definitely in the bad boy sect of country music. He’s not singing about all the stereotypical themes heard in country music, loves his heavy metal screams, & employs plenty of pyrotechnics into his show. If you ever find yourself itching for a good time & are in the position to see him live, take the chance — you might surprise yourself at how much fun you’ll actually have” – Star 102.5

Kayla Merrill – LiveNation

Check out the video for his latest single ‘The Weekend’ and get ready for the rocking good time happening this Labor Day Weekend!

Brantley Gilbert aside, Travis Tritt, Tyler Farr, Chase Rice, Chris Janson, Drake White & The Big Fire, A Thousand Horses, + many more will be showcased at Country Jam!
